(A) The secondary structure of the erCry4 model obtained after extensive MD equilibration, with the isoalloxazine part of the FAD (red) and the conserved tryptophan triad (magenta).

(B) Superimposed molecular structures of the FAD isoalloxazine part and the tryptophan triad from atCry1 (blue), tetrad from dmCry1 (orange), and the tetrad from erCry4 model (red).

To include the complete structure of atCry1 and erCry4 would change the C-terminal part, which, unfortunately, cannot be predicted reliably yet.

(D and E) Comparison of the amino acid residues surrounding the FAD in the binding pocket of atCry1 (D) and dmCry1 and erCry4 (D and E).

The stability of the homology model can be established and probed by MD simulations, as done here for the model of erCry4.

(F) shows the root-mean-square deviation (RMSD) of the protein backbone atoms computed relatively to the initial structure of the model for erCry4 during the entire 0.5-μs MD simulation performed on our erCry4 model.

The gray area indicates the equilibration interval, while the remaining simulation was used to justify the stability of the model (production simulation). »

Sentencing looms in Charlottesville attack; man seeks mercy

Fields pleaded guilty to federal hate crimes in March and is set to be sentenced on June 28.

“No amount of punishment imposed on James can repair the damage he caused to dozens of innocent people.

The rally in 2017 drew hundreds of white nationalists to Charlottesville to protest the planned removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. »

Tribune Editorial: Yes, we do have concentration camps

But that does not mean that the places into which we are herding tens of thousands of migrants, refugees and asylum-seekers are not properly called concentration camps.

The same warning is being raised by past residents of the internment camps — concentration camps — in which we confined Americans of Japanese origin or descent during the dark days of World War II.

Our nation is operating concentration camps for refugee children. »

Kellyanne Conway’s Husband Says Rape Allegations Against Donald Trump Need to Be Treated Seriously

Authored by

Conway, in his op-ed, says that the Republicans who were concerned about the allegations against Clinton must not dismiss what Carroll wrote.

“Trump called Broaddrick ‘courageous,’ and if Broaddrick was courageous, then certainly Carroll is as well,” he writes.

“Republicans or conservatives who promoted Broaddrick’s charges would be hypocritical if they fail to champion Carroll and condemn Trump. »
